Last Week: 7 things from 7 days

Seven things from seven days is an occasional series, where I can log the things we've been up to.

Illness struck this week! Henry has been home from nursery all week and so we've been holed up keeping things low-key and all my computer time has been spent beavering away on this years Christmas card... to be revealed, um, when it's finished!

But before that these things happened...


1. Me and Coco testing out the set up for our silhouette shots for this years Christmas card...
2. Since our weekend breakfast campaign (basically trying to wean the children off cereal everyday) pancakes have become a weekend staple. Coco was particularly pleased with this one she made and topped with nutella and strawberries. (I feel the need here to explain that we NEVER buy strawberries out of season, much as my kids would love me to, but we got these in a full bag of groceries mistakenly delivered to us... we also got to try some fancy butter, loads of grapes and some haddock and I still have a load of funny little yogurt pots in the fridge. I feel bad for the person who missed all these items in their order... but the shop wouldn't take it back and we felt it was our duty not to waste it all!)
3. Coco and Henry helping make the first mince pies of the season.
4. We went ice skating at Sommerset House... unfortunately it was just as Henry was getting ill so he didn't really enjoy it... I had a ball on the other hand and Coco was cautiously persistent and did pretty well. I think I would be correct in saying she has mixed feelings on the subject of whether she wants to go again or not.
5. We got an AMAZING new light for the sitting room - I'm in love; and Hugh is happy as it has LED bulbs. It took ages to find and a long time to save for. Full post possibly to come one day if I get around to it...
6. Before ice skating we had lunch in the pop up Fortnum's Lodge cafe at Sommerset House and Coco told me to take a photo of her food. She has noticed that I like to take photos of most things. What I failed to do was take a photo of the cheese fondue that I (partly) shared with Hugh. It was a bit of a indulgent-splash-out lunch, but, you know, it's Christmas. Almost. I'd recommend it if you are in the area...
7. And before the lunch that we had before the ice skating me and Coco popped into the Natural History Museum to say hello to the dinosaurs, because she asked to and we can.

Looking at the week like that it seems like we are getting in the festive mood...
